  • Can negate any card effect.
  • Destroys the negated card.


  • Needs to discard same type of card to negate an effect, making this somewhat situational.


Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord

When you negate an effect with Ultimate Providence, you can Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord special summoned special summoned from your hand and depending on what you negate he activates a different effect. And since Ultimate Providence can negate any card effect, you can choose what to negate and have Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord gain a specific effect.

Bountiful Artemis

Having Bountiful Artemis Face-up when you use counter traps allows you to draw a card. This will help you recover from the cost of using Ultimate Providence.

A Cat of Ill Omens

No, its a cost
Cmiiw but the text after: means its a cost
I think this card is bugged. I've got two in my deck and whenever the opponent uses a spell or trap card literally nothing happens. I don't get a prompt or anything to use it.

Do you have a spell or trap card in your hand? You need to discard the same type that you're trying to negate

You need to have the cards in your hand not in deck to trigger the prompt

This card is OP! It is situational, yes but you simply have to adjust your dueling strategy and it becomes an always ready card. (Play very slow and hold one of each card type in your hand. If you have two monster cards only summon one, if you only have one magic card try to hold it until you get another) [Obviously, if you can finish the duel, don't hold cards. Just finish it!]

It is working great with this Rex Dino Deck:

Black Brachios
Sergeant electro
x2 Element saurus
x3 Sabersaurus
x2 Crawling dragon #2
x2 Two-headed king rex
Painful Decision
x2 Order of charge
Enemy controller
Mirror wall
Powerful rebirth
Spiritual Earth Art- Kurogane
Ultimate Providence
Windstorm of Etaqua

website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told
me what to do and i did it then he did a (Love spell) for me.
28 hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he miss me so much,

Can ultimate providence activate the effect of dark coffin? Seems like an intersting combo... situational but powerful.

This card is broken, i used the effect of Hane-Hane to send opponents silent magician lv 8 back to this hand. He triggers this Trap, discards a random monster which does not relate to Hane-Hane Type or Attribute?!

Same. One after the other.
Rebound doesn't work while farming LV40 Mai.. against that TRAP wich return our monster, maybe something about "Select a target" or not, but works against Joeybird and Gulldos
This card from time to time does not work, especially against fast spells here. It fits very well in some decks but it annoys me too much when it happens, I hope they get the error.
I find this card to be either very helpful or completely useless. It all depends on having a good balance of card types in your deck and having a good hand because when you have ultimate providence and only 1 type of card in your hand, it will be a waste of a spell/trap card zone space. for that reason, I can only reccomend this card to players using the skill balance.
